San Diego Transportation and Tours

San Diego is most easily accessed with a car, which makes it a very popular drive-to vacation destination. With a car, you can get to San Diego's famed attractions and beaches quickly and conveniently. Keep in mind that many places in San Diego charge for parking. Most accept credit cards, but some are cash only, so it's a good idea to keep some change handy.

If you fly into San Diego, the airport is conveniently located downtown and within minutes of beaches, hotels and attractions. Rental cars are available at the airport, although a few hotels do offer complimentary airport shuttle. Public transportation is available, but many families prefer the flexibility of having a car to get around San Diego. Another option that is increasing in popularity is taking an Uber or Lyft. That way you don't have to worry about finding a parking spot or paying for parking. You also don't have to think about directions or how to get where you're going.

San Diego is a unique city, and as such offers some unique transportation and tour options. You can explore the city on the Old Town Trolley Tour where you'll learn all about San Diego's wild history and awesome present. You can hop off and on at some of San Diego's most popular beaches and attractions. You can also see San Diego from a whole new perspective... from its waters. Choose from a one hour north or south bay tour, or choose the two hour harbor tour and experience the whole bay. If you're looking for adventure, consider taking to the waters on a Speedboat Adventure. You can either take control of your own two person speedboat or cruise at high speeds along the bay. Or, get the best of both worlds and take the San Diego SEAL Tour. It's part open air bus and part boat, truly making it one of the most interesting San Diego transportation and tours offering.
